Based on how it usually goes, that bears repeating. :D

I voted for ice, of course, but an honorable mention to pek, which isn't up there. Extremely cool little wm.

I don't know if xfce's xfwm4 is a window manager, if it is it's missing from the list.

slakmagik 12-31-2004 01:53 AM

Yeah, xfwm4 is a wm but it's part of xfce, which is in de. Same would go for kwm and metacity.

(I think - I can't see the options anymore because I voted.)

Speaking of - even if it's necessary to block off the results, would it be possible to still display the candidates?

Fluxbox all the way :)

Glad they are split. Use beautiful Gnome 2.8 on Ubuntu on mt stationary PC and slick & lovely Flux on my Libranet laptop.

Voted Ion.

OmegaBlac 12-31-2004 02:01 PM

Enlightenment gets my vote again. It is what I use and I'm satisfied with it. Where's Ion & Ratpoison?

ratpoison 12-31-2004 05:01 PM

I voted for WindowMaker which I occasionally use, but would have liked to have seen others like ratpoison, wmi, and ion listed. All very functional and lightening fast!!!

bpt 12-31-2004 08:33 PM

Ratpoison, StumpWM, LarsWM and Ion are missing...

Until I take the time to get used to a tiling window manager, I use Sawfish and Fvwm2, both for the extensive customizability. Supposedly a version of SCWM that works with Guile 2.6 will be out soon...

Lindlar 01-01-2005 05:11 AM

Icewm! It's similar to win98. :)

slackie1000 01-01-2005 08:16 AM
